For some reason I'm just noticing Wikipedia edit tags for the first time.

They are little labels that automatically get assigned to an edit.

Since January there's one for anonymous edits from Congress. Thanks @legoktm!

Here's an example from @congressedits

I've been working on getting ActivityPub Article types fully supported inline in the Mastodon home feed. I've got it working pretty well now, at least for blog posts from write.as. It supports a "safe" subset of rich text using a PR from @Thib (github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/) and then I added some code to support <img> tags that proxies images to the local server, just like we currently do with image attachments. Alt text and media blocking are fully supported/respected.

Video demo attached!

In case someone here needs to hear it, telling someone "we literally cannot take everything you want to give to the archives because we have resourcing issues" is always a valid decision and a hill you *should* die on. Think of it as a favor to your future self.

@sabrams hey, if you're not feeling too ill, do you happen to have the seed list for that AUT dataset handy?

I'm looking for literature (articles, blog posts, books) that covers "succession planning" for IT/sysadmin in activist groups. Like, for a volunteer group, what happens if your IT person just leaves? What are best practices so that the group isn't locked out of their web hosting etc (simply through lack of information rather than malice on the previous IT person's fault)
